For the past several months, we've been posting articles by guest bloggers Danyelle Leafty, Stina Lindenblatt, and Jane Lebak, and I would like to thank them for the great job they've been doing. In fact, they've done so well that we think they deserve to be made official members of the QT Blog, with all the honors (huh?) and privileges (double huh?) which that entails. So please join me in welcoming them aboard and wishing them the best of luck.
Danyelle writes MG and YA fantasy. In her spare time, she collects dragons, talking frogs, and fairy godmothers. She can be found discussing the art of turning one's characters into various animals, painting with words, and the best ways to avoid getting eaten by dragons on her blog.

Stina Lindenblatt writes romantic suspense and young adults novels, and is a member of the SCBWI and RWA.
Although not athletically inclined (and was always picked last for teams), she pursued a physical education degree and then a Master’s of Science Degree in exercise physiology. Her experiences range from motivating elite athletes during fitness tests to working as a research assistant for the Alberta Cancer board to selling drugs (the ethical kind) to physicians. It was during her latter career that she discovered a taste for writing fiction—in the form of annual business plans. In her spare time, she’s a photographer and blogging addict, and can be found hanging out on her blog, Seeing Creative. www.stinalindenblatt.com

She is represented by Roseanne Wells of the Marianne Strong Literary Agency.
